Representative Text

1 I will tell of the Savior who died
That the world might be saved through his love;
For may be I can win to his side
Some dear soul for his kingdom above.

Day by day,
All my way,
I will tell the sweet story again,
Day by day,
All the way,
I will tell of the Savior of men.

2 I will tell of the peace he has sent
To the hearts that are resting in trust;
For who knows but that perfect content
May uplift some poor life from the dust? [Refrain]

3 I will tell of the home where he waits
To receive me, beyond the dark sea;
For perchance I may lead through its gates
One who learned of its glories from me. [Refrain]
